Full Circle with Creative Editions and Caitlin McGuire

Well it's hard to believe that our little idea grew to such a great big idea three years ago now. Creative Editions started with a little print by Caitlin McGuire and so we thought it would be fitting to end with one of her works too. Full Circle!

December will be the LAST CALL for our art subscription service to make way for some new ideas. As of today December 15th, we will bring our subscription service to a close for all new subscribers.  However if you want to pick up the final four months of art, we are offering them at a group price of $65. Would make a lovely gift (and affordable, as our prints usually retail at $25 each) Get in touch!

Colourful Tiles by Caitlin McGuire is featured below. The original work only measures 2.5" x 3.5"  so it's fun to see this little mini painting expanded to our regular print size.

December Days: Cats for Christmas

It's Thursday and that means it's once again time to share a few treasures that are specially priced at 25% until December 24th. We thought that these two kitties would make the purrrrrrrfect gift for any cat lover under a tree for those on your list. Each work is an original watercolour on paper and measures 5" x 7". They are nicely framed in a simple wood frame each, which adds about 1 inch to the overall dimensions.

They are normally $125 but are now 25% off, which means they are the very bizarre price of $93.75 each.  and by the very lovely person and artist Colleen MacIsaac.  Get in touch soon to make them yours!

Two new paintings by Katharine Burns have arrived! Act Quickly!

Artist Katharine Burns has come a long way since only three years ago, when we had her first feature of paintings, which were mostly inspired by bicycles. We saw a great artist beginning to emerge- with lots of talent, professionalism and even more importantly a passion to keep painting and to keep learning more and more!

Now fast forward to current day, where Katharine has full representation by our gallery and has had two sold out shows with us and two more shows planned already for 2018 and  has found representation outside of Nova Scotia as well. This year she also had a very successful collaboration with Symphony Nova Scotia,completed  many commissions and took the plunge a few months ago to quit her day job and launch headfirst into a career as a professional artist. That takes courage and dedication.

Here are two new works available that will be on display at our Holiday Party this Friday, December 8th, 4pm-8pm. You'll have a chance to meet artist Katharine Burns too! Please do pop in and say hello and see what's new!  Here's a link to the event page for the party HERE

Reflections of Hearn Island - 28x28, Oil on Canvas, $1500
Wavelength - 18x36, Oil on canvas , $1,350

December Days- Better Late than Never

This past Saturday we were serving up hot cider and donuts to all that visited our gallery; as people were just beginning to do some scouting for holiday ideas and gifts. We were also fundraising for the annual Christmas Daddies Telethon and were on television presenting our gift of money and some art too, with artist William Rudolph. Thanks to all that helped out!


 All this to say.....we didn't put up our December Days special on Saturday as we ran out of time and energy, so here it is today....better later than never. It's this wonderful piece by Gordon MacDonald!


This work is called "The Blue House" and is painted with oil on board with some gold leaf- a new technique that Gordon just began experimenting in the past years. This work is from 2016. It measures 21.75" x 25.5"

 It's regular price is $1650 but until December 24th, it is $1100

We will continue posting December Days with specially priced art each Thursday and Saturday.  
Check back often!

DECEMBER DAYS start early this year for Art

Hello and welcome to the beginning of the holiday season! Last year we hosted a special section of works at special prices in December, leading up to the big day. This year we thought we'd get a head start, as people are starting to shop already for their special someones, ore perhaps in need of a pick-me-up for themselves in this darker colder month of November. :-)  Art is just what you need!

So, without further adieu, here are today's offerings. These works are available at these special prices until December 24th, but often go quickly so get in touch when they strike your fancy. Check back each Thursday and Saturday for new offerings!

First up, here is a tasty painting by self taught artist George Spencer It's simply called "Fries", measures 8" x 10", Oil on board. Regular price is $395 but until December 24th it is $265. This painting would look wonderful in your kitchen or dining area, or anywhere you want to be reminded of delicious french fries. We love this playful approach to traditional still-life. It also has a retro-vibe about it.


Next up and continuing in the retro-vibed imagery, we have a painting by Craig Baltzer from when he first began showing his works with us. This painting is called "First Light", measures 12" x 16", Oil on board. Regular price is $450, but until December 24th it is priced at $325.
